This ice will remind you of making ice cream out of snow. While many commercial vanilla desserts are too cloying to let the vanilla flavor shine through, this three-ingredient recipe will show you that vanilla is anything but plain. You can use an equal amount of vanilla paste for the extract; it will create an ice flecked with vanilla seeds.
4 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves. Pour into an 8-inch square glass or ceramic baking dish. Cover and freeze until partially frozen (about 1 hour). Scrape with a fork, crushing any lumps. Freeze, scraping with a fork every hour, 2 hours or until completely frozen.
